Does drinking a glass of milk help to lessen your acidity?

Myth: Drinking a glass of milk will ease your acidity/ heartburn
Fact: Drinking a glass of milk when suffering from acidity is a common home remedy practised by many. However, this can only provide temporary relief. When you drink milk, initially, it eases the heartburn by neutralising acids. However, later, the calcium content in the milk triggers the production of acidic juices, and this only worsens your acidity. Also, milk takes time to get digested, thereby requiring more acids.
